Air conditioners are frequently neglected by homeowners, and they won’t often receive repairs or maintenance until homeowners notice huge problems or the AC stops working completely. By that time, the repairs you’ll need are going to be complex and expensive. The earlier you can catch the problems, the better it’ll be for you.
It won’t just save you money on those repairs, but also on your energy costs. And if you wait until more serious repairs occur, be ready for them to happen when your AC is running the most, in the hottest parts of the year, leaving you in an emergency situation. Call us today to learn more and to receive a service estimate.
The best way to catch problems as early as possible is to have regular tune-ups of your AC. Our Big Bear air conditioning repair specialists recommend having an inspection at least once a year to make sure it’s running as well as possible. A well-maintained air conditioner will have less problems and save you loads on energy. You’ll use less energy to achieve the same temperatures with clean vents and well-maintained ducts.
Cleaning your filters is one thing you can do on your own that will help with the functionality and efficiency of your AC. It’s one of the most basic parts of air conditioning repair, and also one of the most important. Your air conditioner’s manual most likely includes a section about changing the filters. If not, it most likely is as simple as removing the filter and changing it out, or running it under some water. You’re only looking to remove the small pieces of debris and dust particles that the filter keeps from entering your air conditioning system.
The filter will be found at the points of your air conditioning system that are closest to your walls. During any AC repairs, our Big Bear air conditioning repair specialists make sure that your filters are clean and free of any debris. If you notice any blockage when removing the filter, you should try to remove it, if it’s close enough to you. Any blockage at all within your ducts will hinder the air flow and make it more difficult and more expensive to cool your home. If the blockage is out of reach, our air conditioning contractors can take care of it and any blockage that may be lurking inside.
The other two main parts of your AC unit are found outside your home. They’re your compressor and your condenser. The compressor sends the cool air (or “refrigerant”) into the ducts to be distributed throughout your home. Anything that restricts this airflow is restricting how cool your home can be. The condenser removes hot air from your home. If you place your hand near the condenser, you should be able to feel hot air coming out. If you don’t, you may have a problem. If either of these parts of the unit experience problems, you’ll need to call a professional Big bear air conditioning repair specialist.
